Occasionally, mistakes are made - and when they are, patients have a right to seek compensation.
When we need medical care, we place a great deal of trust in the professionals treating us. Occasionally, mistakes are made – and when they are, patients have a right to seek compensation.
If you have suffered as a result of a medical accident, a surgical error, a doctor’s misdiagnosis, delay in treatment, or any other mistake in your treatment, Gotelee’s team of expert lawyers can give you advice on what to do and help you make a claim.
We will take the time to understand your situation, provide you with support and help you through the process.
By making a claim, the compensation you could receive could help to deal with the consequences of an error, as well as helping to ensure that the same mistake isn’t repeated.
Medical Negligence claims can arise against all healthcare providers including consultants, surgeons, doctors, nurses, dentists, GPs, physiotherapists, midwives, opticians, clinical commissioning groups and NHS Trusts. It does not matter if you have been treated by the NHS or as a private patient.
Our lawyers, based in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Melton, Hadleigh and Woodbridge, have a wealth of experience handling cases of this sort, and are experts in ensuring that our clients receive the right compensation for their injury and any losses they have incurred or may incur in the future.
Great service, never made things complicated!
